Looked like it was pretty much ready to go last week when we were at the Breakers. We had a good view of the South side of the building from our room and they had several rooms lit up and looked to be fully furnished and even had the TVs on. They were doing some decorative work around the entrance and there is also some tape on the glass on the top few floors but we didn't see any other work going on. I believe they are now at the point where they are showing it off to the public or potential customers.

Stayed at Ocean 22 this past weekend.... VERY nice place…. Of course it's brand new, but WOW. Unfortunately the parking lot is across the street and 2 blocks up, but what the heck… even in a downpour. (valet is available for $15, but I'm el-cheapo). There were plenty of bellhops and parking attendants/valets which directed unloading in an efficient manner (something most other MB resorts sorely lack). Booked a king-bed suite on the 24th floor with a side view. Even though it wasn't oceanfront, it still has an amazing view:

High-end appliances and hard-wood floors throughout are a very nice touch. 1BR unit also had a washer/dryer and dishwasher. Couch was large and comfortable (particularly for a 1 BR unit), the King bed was VERY comfortable with awesome pillows.

The major drawback is the timeshare pressure is everywhere (but not overbearing). Seems 90% of the realtors in Horry County must work here. Fortunately a valet gave me a "Hilton Vacations" umbrella when he saw me walking to the garage. I think this world's-ugliest-umbrella is part of the "prize package" as someone on the elevator commented on the umbrella and said "wasn't that presentation obnoxious ?". None of the sales people approached me as long as I carried this loud, lime-green umbrella with me.

I took a walk around the "resort" and it is interesting. One thing I didn't notice during check-in is that there is no "beach vibe" to the place.... All modern material, lots of glass, stainless steel, black accents, etc. Very stylish, but..... The building is very tall at 23 stories and is VERY narrow. Probably only 175 feet of beachfront. 2 small pools (one covered) and a decent sized hot tub. No lazy river. There is a small pool-front bar, but no kid-oriented play area. The second floor is check-in, office space for the sales people another bar which faces Ocean Blvd but with no view of the ocean. Also a small shop for sundries, coffee, etc. All appear more oriented towards business functions than family beach fun. There is a calendar with kids activities in the smallish lawn area between the pool and beach, but everything was cancelled due to weather. There were a LOT of leaks due to the torrential rains received, not what one would expect from a new resort.

Not trying to dissuade anyone from a timeshare, but google Hilton Vacations and do some research before attending a presentation.

Looks nice! I just hope that area can support the additional people - it gets busy down there around Breakers already.

Thanks Patrish - Interesting some folks enjoy the Anderson Ocean Club (now another Hilton property) versus Oceans 22. Never stayed at the Anderson, hopefully during another trip (and hopefully soon !).
